My client, Trey, and I went to the Germantown Cricket Club (GCC) for some of our physical therapy sessions over the summer. Trey enjoys coming here with his family to use the playground, fitness center, or swim in the pool. One of the ways I try to keep physical therapy fun and interesting for Trey is trying new sports and activities out in the community. The indoor tennis courts at GCC are the perfect space to escape the heat and humidity for exercise during the summer months. During our therapy sessions, we focused on speed and agility training, in addition to spatial and body awareness – all important components to playing tennis! We used visual, auditory, and kinesthetic feedback to enhance Trey’s learning experience when performing various tennis drills. Trey and I had so much fun playing on the tennis courts this summer in our all white uniforms!
